bol. Remember to consider contrast and texture
when choosing fabrics.
Sashing
For the sample quilt, which is 79" x 93", you
will need (this is generous yardage):
u Cut 56 pieces 2" x 8".
u Cut 56 pieces 2" x 10".
Appliqué: small scraps for each block.
These can come from your stash or
you can enjoy shopping for fat eighths.

center and then cut borders. If you prefer to
cut borders in advance, these measurements
worked for me.
Note: Look closely at the sample quilt blocks
to see how I used fabric to really bring out certain features. For example, the “argyle” sock on
Scotland Sue is a strip of plaid fabric. To make
Sherlock Sue’s magnifier look like glass, I used
netting instead of fabric.
Inner Border
u Cut 2 pieces 1¹⁄₄" x 66¹⁄₂" for the top and
bottom borders.
u Cut 2 pieces 1¹⁄₄" x 79" for the side borders.
Outer Border

bottom borders.
